RM is publishing the complete fictional cycle of Maqroll el Gaviero.
At the age of sixty-three, Álvaro Mutis took up the character that had appeared sporadically in his poetry and turned him into the central figure of a narrative cycle consisting of seven novels, written between 1986 and 1993, to which the author himself gave the general title of Empresas y tribulaciones de Maqroll el Gaviero.
Maqroll el Gaviero is the main character in all seven novels: La nieve del Almirante, Ilona llega con la lluvia, Un bel morir, La última escala del Tramp Steamer, Amirbar, Abdul Bashur, soñador de navíos, and Tríptico de mar y tierra.
Maqroll el Gaviero has earned a place as one of the legendary characters of world literature. In the words of Javier Reverte, he constitutes “a veritable monument in contemporary Latin American literature.”
The design of the cover was done by the duo Hermanos Berenguer.
